3. So I call to get my Mom (90) a flue shot (stop me if you have heard this one before!)
First, she's on an Advantage plan.

...call to make an appointment to get her the flu shot (about 6 weeks ago). The Primary office says that I need a reason to bring her in...Ok, the flu shot. Not a reason...is this a follow up to a previous issue or is she sick? Uh...she can't be sick to get a flue shot! Can we just walk in for a flu shot? No...you need a reason to come in! Uhhh...flu shot. Sorry...you will need a reason to make an appointment.

SO, I call her Medical Group...they have their own Urgent care...no appointment needed...we walk in and are done in 10 minutes. And, no charge to us.

What the HELL is with the Primary? I just felt like they were going to bill Medicare some big amount for an office visit AND for the flu shot.

Scam?????
